Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.
At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.
We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Bow Shaped Slab, Pembroke © chrisimray
Regarded as a bit of an outpost from the more popular Pembroke haunts, Flimston Bay offers plenty of decent routes including many at a useful grade. There is climbing all over the area but for most visitors, much of this will be too hard or too esoteric. The four walls covered in this section include three easy-angled slabs, and one hard-angled wall. The two narrow slabs of Flimston Crack and Bow-Shaped Slab give the full sea cliff experience at a grade that most can manage. The most popular area is the accessible Crystal Slabs - heaven for those into slabby VSs. Adding another dimension to the area is the unique Mosaic Wall - heaven for people who are into well-protected savagely-strenuous crack climbs of E3 and above ..... and I know there are a lot of you out there!
Approach from Stack Rocks in 15-25 mins.
Night firing normally occurs on Tuesday & Thursday but may also alternate to Monday & Wednesday.
A major rockfall occured here in 2014 and most of the actual point itself no longer exists! Many routes have been obliterated. A considerable amount of loose rock remains and great care is required for anyone venturing here.
|Access needs updating - This crack is in Range East and is fine to climb on.
It can be found just after the first cattle grid / fence. Bow shaped wall is found after the second cattle grid and a T-junction in the road|

|The arch once used for access has completely gone now due to rockfall, making access a lot more difficult. see photo|
